Why did you install FunTVTab onto your computer? Was it because this program promised you to show full episodes of your favorite TV shows for free? Although it might appear as if this program provides you with free services, we have found that the links it promotes actually route to websites that require subscription and payments, including Netflix and Amazon. Sure, this program is free to install, but it will not help you watch paid content for free, if that is what you were hoping. So, if you had hoped that this app would turn your browser into a free media center and would help you stream TV directly from your PC, you must be disappointed. Well, this is not the only reason to remove FunTVTab from your operating system.

If you have downloaded FunTVTab from its official website, funtvtab.com, or the Chrome web store, it is unlikely that you are dealing with additional unwanted programs. However, if you have trusted an unreliable third-party installer to let this suspicious program in, you might find other suspicious and even malicious programs on your operating system. Although we do not want to focus on third-party malware within this report, we want to warn you that it could be extremely harmful, and you should not ignore it. In fact, if more malicious threats are active, you should postpone the removal of FunTVTab to get rid of these threats first. Having said that, this potentially unwanted program deserves your attention as well because it can initiate activity you might be completely unaware of.

You probably knew about the modifications regarding your browsers when installing FunTVTab. It is stated that this program can change new tab and default search settings on Firefox and Chrome browsers, the ones that the program is compatible with itself. Search.funtvtabsearch.com is the search tool that this program is associated with, and it is identical to the infamous Search.realcoolmoviessearch.com. It is also similar to Search.searchinsocial.com, Search.emaildefendsearch.com, and various other suspicious search tools that are associated with specific browser extensions. IMALI - N.I. MEDIA LTD is the developer of this software, and it is well-known for developing potentially unwanted programs, adware, and hijackers; all of the programs you do not want on your operating system. Although this software might introduce you to some beneficial services, our researchers warn that the underlying activity of this software is not as transparent and not as beneficial for you personally.

When you enter keywords into the search tool provided by FunTVTab, search.funtvtabsearch.com, you are redirected to a third-party page. Although this potentially unwanted program shows the search results using the popular Yahoo Search engine, you must keep in mind that they could be adjusted to show the links that IMALI Media wants you to see. If you have reviewed the Privacy Policy, you know that this company works with third-party advertisers, and the search tool is the main platform that is used to showcase these ads. Note that money is earned if you interact with the ads shown to you, and, in some cases, the content of the ads is not important as long as you interact with them and generate a profit. Of course, this is one of the most important reasons to delete this software from your PC. It is also important to erase this software to stop the collection of data. Although personal data is not collected by IMALI Media, your browsing history and information regarding your browsers could be used to design more attractive offers. If you think that all attractive offers are reliable, you are wrong.

Do you have experience erasing unwanted Chrome or Firefox extensions? If you do, you should have no trouble deleting FunTVTab. The guide we have created shows how to erase these unwanted extensions from your computer, rather than the browser, and we advise following these steps to learn where these extensions lay, and what kinds of components represent them. This is an important skill to have in case you have to face unwanted extensions in the future. Of course, every threat is unique, and you might have to approach the removal process in a different way every time. You need to keep this in mind if other threats are active on your operating system at this moment. If you cannot handle them manually, install a trusted malware remover that will be able to erase them all automatically.
